In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Gear up for the future with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get a $30 fun card for activities at Wilsonville Family Fun Center.
Wilsonville Family Fun Center boasts 6 sprawling acres teeming with competitive karts, thrilling pintsize rides, and competitions waged on artificial and virtual playing fields. A breeze lifts the hair of riders zooming in go-karts ($7/driver; $3/passenger) and mini golfers dueling with clubs on the shrink-rayed 18-hole course ($7/golfer). A Sky Trail ropes course ($5.50) harnesses gravity-defying navigators, and motorized bumper boats ($7/driver; $3/passenger) splash into one another with inflated joy. Eight batting cages pitch baseballs and softballs at speeds ranging from 40 mph to 70 mph ($3 for 25 pitches), and climbers send their pet monkeys up a 28-foot rock wall to learn from their technique before attempting the ascent themselves ($5.50/climb).
Inside the fun center, warriors duck laser beams in the fog and flickering strobe lights of the Lazerxtreme arena ($7). The Max Flight Cyber Coaster ($5.50) simulates the twists and turns of a coiling tracks, and the Frog Hopper ($3) slides straight up and then bounces downward as riders sprout warts and start wondering if they are princes in disguise. Wee ones age 3 and older bounce in the Kidopolis Playland ($5.50/child; free for adults) or take advantage of 100 flashy games that reward skill and dexterity in the on-site arcade.
Wilsonville Family Fun Center & Bullwinkle's Restaurant
Nestled up against a backdrop of giant firs and never-ending sky, Wilsonville Family Fun Center reveals its activities for visitors with 6 acres of jostling bumper boats, squealing go-karts, and families running between more than 11 attractions. On the 18-hole mini-golf course, families putt through a village of tiny cottages and elaborate castles, and at the batting cages they take windmill-inspired swings at pitches flung at up to 70 miles per hour. After taking in enough ground-level scenery, participants can scale the 28-foot rock wall, then strap in to navigate the rope course along the Sky Trail for bird's-eye views of the park, or take a ride on the 800-foot two-way Soaring Eagle zip line, which reaches speeds of up to 25 mph. Scooting indoors, families take aim at each other in the laser-tag arena replete with music, flashing lights, and crawling fog. Afterward, more than 100 games beckon from the two-story arcade. Don't forget to try their newest attraction, the XD Dark Ride, where eight can watch and ride in a 3D-motion theatre, competing for the highest score. Before calling it a day, groups can stop by Bullwinkle's Restaurant, where an animatronic Rocky and Bullwinkle Show pairs with pizza and pop for the kids and beer and burgers for adults.
